Ginnifer Goodwin In Topshop – 2011 Met Gala

I bet you never thought you’d see a Topshop dress at the 2011 Met Gala.

Ginnifer Goodwin was one of the best dressed of the night wearing a custom Topshop Unique green silk twist front gown.

The long sleeve gown has some sexy cut-out details around the waist and a thigh-high split.

Her dress was paired with a stunning necklace with green and turquoise.

Navy Aperlai ‘Karine’ heels with cream and turquoise straps and a Kotur navy clutch completed her look.

I love her eye make-up. It’s very complement to her look without being too overbearing.

    wrong doesn’t begin to describe this look. She looks like an extra at a fairy prom scene cut from one of the lord of the rings movies.

    The dress is not for me but she looks stunning!!

  3. Raquel May 4, 2011 at 06:09 #

    Eh, I don’t like the eye make up, and like others I don’t quite think the dress is right around her hips, but the final result is fantastic.

  4. Danielle May 4, 2011 at 05:17 #

    I agree that she is getting that lollipop syndrome. Love it from the waist up

  5. KateS May 4, 2011 at 02:32 #

    Finally an edgy look that’s really working for her. The makeup is genius. Love it.

    Refreshing! Love the colors! Her jewelery is stunning! This is one Topshop dress at it’s best!

  8. Lee May 4, 2011 at 00:50 #

    I agree, this is one of the best looks of the night. Doesn’t have the crazy drama of Christina Ricci’s dress, but the color, the shoes, the makeup, and the fit of the dress too, she looks so striking. I squealed when I saw her shoes, I am so very sick of black or beige platform pumps, I love multi-colored shoes, and the look of these is so interesting.

    Now, she just needs to turn on her beautiful smile.

    Everything – color, styling, that necklace! those shoes! – is so utterly fabulous. That’s why it’s criminal that this custom dress is so not flattering in her waist/hip area. I’m going to overlook that in the hope that it is just this picture.

  10. Ilhaam May 3, 2011 at 20:06 #

    Does anyone know where the necklace is from?

    It’s TDF! I need it in my life but it will obv be too expensive. SIGH my best dressed of the night. LOVE IT

  11. Julie May 3, 2011 at 19:24 #

    She looks totally dazed. 🙁

    Amazing! She never bores me, I really love how unpredictable it is yet suits her figure. I really like how my favorites, Ginnifer and Christina Ricci, who don’t have statuesque figures left the deepest impression of the night wearing beautiful and innovative designs!

  14. Karen B. May 3, 2011 at 17:20 #

    LOVE this look. Can I please just mention the shoes? they work so well with every other element without being too matchy. AMAZING

  15. Vidhya May 3, 2011 at 17:04 #

    Its wonderful but I would have laid off the turquoise part of the eyeshadow and sticked to the green..

  16. Leti May 3, 2011 at 16:31 #

    She looks so fierce, and I’m loving it. Definitely in my top five. It’s a little unflattering across the hips, but she looks so good otherwise.

  17. bridget May 3, 2011 at 16:25 #

    love that its topshop but i agree it makes her hips look too big – and she’s a teeny girl.

  18. Valeria May 3, 2011 at 15:52 #

    amazing look and make-up is fantastic! but she starts looking a tad on anorexic side, no?

  19. Hannah May 3, 2011 at 14:49 #

    This was honestly in my top 5 of the night. It really proves hwo she is th eone working th emagic, even in Topshop. I almost dies when I saw her eye makeup, I ADORE it. It is such aclever idea, it works beautifully with what she is wearing, for the occasion, and probabyl onyl worked in that lighting, not a typical red carpet, whilst being modern. Such a good choice from whoever did it and for her to have allowed it. She NEVER dissappoints it seems. Easily one of the best dressed. I cannot get over how intelligent this look is.

  20. mol May 3, 2011 at 14:31 #

    Best dressed, best make-up, best accessories – every detail is working in this ensemble……

  22. Incroyable May 3, 2011 at 14:11 #

    Before I read the heading I was certain she was wearing Gucci. Applauds to her for pulling this off so wonderfully.

  23. Kaylie May 3, 2011 at 14:08 #

    I agree! One of the best dressed at this event. The color looks great on her, that necklace is to die for, and I love the shoes! Nice!

  24. ber May 3, 2011 at 14:03 #

    One of my favorites of the night.

  25. Alina May 3, 2011 at 13:54 #

    I hate the make-up(she looks scared) + from the waist down the dress looks weird.

  26. Luis May 3, 2011 at 13:50 #

    She wore Topshop unique tat isn’t so cheap than the normal Topshop, but of course peanuts compared to Couture. She looks good. I love her make up.

  27. feliciab May 3, 2011 at 13:46 #

    The dress is nice – the bit around her waist is weird – but her hair, makeup and accessories make this freaking gorgeous.

  28. ullis May 3, 2011 at 13:44 #

    just WOW! She looks PERFECT!

  29. roxana May 3, 2011 at 13:26 #

    she looks very good! if only she cracked a smile!

  30. Julie May 3, 2011 at 12:59 #

    I like it from the waist up, but it looks weird around her hips.

    • dee May 3, 2011 at 15:18 #

      I agree. The hip area doesn’t look right. Everything else is gorgeous.

    • cartouche May 3, 2011 at 19:42 #

      yeah she has a great figure but this dress makes her look very wide around the hips. besides that, she looks great! her style is original and she always gives us something fresh. love her!

    • Gaber May 3, 2011 at 20:34 #

      Yep, that’s my issue also.
      She’s insanely gorgeous (everything else works), but those hip details just kill the dress.

  31. asherlev1 May 3, 2011 at 12:56 #

    *JAWDROP* Her haircut is working so well with the dress too!

    She’s putting women in all those designer dresses to shame. 😀

  32. Karina May 3, 2011 at 12:53 #

    Best Dressed of the event… Love the colour, love the makeup… Love the attitude… Simple, yet very diferent… LOVE IT !!!

  33. f4fashion May 3, 2011 at 12:45 #

    The dress itself is nice but for me the accessories made this look. I love the color coordination, the make up and Gin’s personality.

  34. Molly May 3, 2011 at 12:40 #

    JUST STUNNING. She looks absolutely amazing. Not sure the dress does wonders for her body but that hair and make up would distract from even the worst fashion choices. LOVE HER!

  35. robbie May 3, 2011 at 12:40 #

    she looks great minus the hideous make-up.

    • Chloe May 3, 2011 at 12:56 #

      I LOVE her make-up

  36. Jen May 3, 2011 at 12:39 #

    By far one of my favorites. The colors, the necklace and the shoes all work so well together.

  37. Alex May 3, 2011 at 12:36 #

    When I first saw she’s wearing Topshop on different site I thought that it’s a mistake, but it shows that you don’t need a big designer to look spectacular.
    Wow, Ginnifer really ca make a dramatic entrance, she’s head to toe perfection, I love it.

  38. Beinta May 3, 2011 at 12:28 #

    Wow, she looks gorgeous! Haha, Top Shop on the red carpet. Love it!

  39. Sophie May 3, 2011 at 12:26 #

    She looks amazing!!
    Topshop looks better on the red carpet than some fashion designers, for example Carolina Herrera for Christina Hendricks…

  40. Lucía May 3, 2011 at 12:21 #

    Yes, she actually makes it work!

  41. Lara May 3, 2011 at 12:18 #

    Wow wow wow and wow… This is absolutely breathtaking… one of my picks for BDOTW. Possibly her best-ever look.

  42. Fiona May 3, 2011 at 12:14 #

    This colour is stunning on her, fabulous that it’s Topshop! Love the makeup – her short hair makes it look perfect! Her necklace is to die for – I must look for a closeup!!

  43. D May 3, 2011 at 12:12 #

    LOVE this! 🙂 right jellewry shoes makeup and what a colour 🙂 BDOTW list

    • Dani May 4, 2011 at 02:22 #

      Yup, agree!

  44. Iris May 3, 2011 at 12:05 #

    that was exactly my reaction — topshop on the red carpet??!! she looks stunning!

  45. Jess May 3, 2011 at 12:04 #

    that necklace is absolutely perfect for this look.,,,and so is her beautiful make-up

  46. ude May 3, 2011 at 11:49 #

    love this! still can’t believe that it’s topshop!!! i hope it goes into production

  47. Mahima May 3, 2011 at 11:46 #

    Wow. I love how her accessories and makeup match the dress, but without being matchy-matchy. I guess a better word would be compliment.
